The authors report a huge lymphangioma of the tongue in a sixty-seven years old female patient. The remarkable progression in dimensions of this lesion, leading to the inevitable protrusion of the tongue, led to the realization of an extended glossectomy, with a functional objective in mind. This simple procedure showed an excellent five years follow-up results. From this case report, the authors stress up on the etiopathogenic, pathological, clinical as well as therapeutic aspects of lingual lymphangioma.
